Today, countless Erie and Niagara county residents and others throughout the country will take a step towards being healthy for good and walk to commemorate the American Heart Association's National Walking Day.
The American Heart Association will kick-off the month-long campaign to encourage people to move more by increasing their physical activity.
The campaign is broken down into weekly themes.
Week 1 focuses on walking and the basic tools you need to get started.
Walking is one of the safest, least expensive, and most sustainable forms of exercise.
Week 2 and 3 focuses on recreational sports and outdoor activities the whole family can do together and week 4 focuses on mindful movement and reducing stress by doing activities such as yoga, Pilates and tail chi.
